My Favorite Things - Countdown Day 4

Thank you for coming by my blog today, you picked a good day because this is Countdown Day 4 of the 5 day countdown to the My Favorite Things April release which you can buy April 13th.   Read on for the how-to on this card.

To kick it off I used the brand new Watercolor Wash stencil and I ink blended using Distress Inks to create the suggestion of grass and sky.   I've fallen hard in love with this stencil and all of the possibilities of it!  I then removed the stencil and ink blended a little more using the same Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers to create a focal point.

I die cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX.  I backed the centre portion with dimensional foam tape and adhered both pieces to a panel of white cardstock.

I stamped the images from the beautiful new stamp set illustrated by Stacey Yacula called Hugs Make Everything Better.  I coloured them with Copic markers, die cut with the coordinating Die-namics, backed them with foam tape and applied to the scene.  I added a few white gel pen accents to make the pop!

I used a die cut from the Outside the Box Grass Die-namics and ink blended it, stamped the sentiment (there's some super sweet sentiments in this stamp set) and added some 'daisies' with a white gel pen.   These die cuts fit perfectly across an A2 card giving the look of a wrap around without actually wrapping around, just a happy accident!   This piece was applied with some more foam tape.

To finish up I attached two Petite Cloud Die-namics and a few sparkling clear sequin accents.

I hope you love the card and that your excitement is building for the new release.   You can find me here again tomorrow with a new card reveal for the release.  Hope to see you then, happy crafting!


  1. I can so relate to this sentiment. There are so many people I can't wait see and hug again. Your little foxes look so happy hugging each other. A great card!

  2. Darling card! The scenery is so pretty. Love your coloring, too!

  3. I just love those foxes! Beautiful scene!
